His YouTube video titled, “Alex Tanney Trick Shot Quarterback — Better Than Johnny Mac,” landed him fame on a broad stage being shared all over the internet.
If you haven’t seen the video, here it is.
But former Monmouth quarterback Alex Tanney’s ultimate goal of becoming an NFL quarterback has so far been unsuccessful.
After becoming college free agent in 2012 Tanney had brief stints with the Kansas City Chiefs, Dallas Cowboys and Cleveland Browns. Now Tanney is getting a new opportunity in Tampa Bay with the Buccaneers.
Tanney will be competing with former Buccaneers quarterbacks Mike Glennon an Mike Kafka.
Will this internet sensation finally prove to the world that he’s more than just a viral one-trick wonder?
